An imm. judge just denied my asylum-seeking client's bond bc he didn't have ID.

He does, though. He came to the US w/photo ID, but ICE took it at the border... and now says they don't have it.

We have a week to come up with something & try for bond again.

My client told us that ICE had his ID, and I just had to trust that they did. They usually do.

We just have no lawful right to confirm that. This is what a court system with no right to discovery looks like.

#Immigrationcourts need to be brought into the judicial branch ASAP.
(To be clear, the court allowed us to w/draw the bond request without prejudice, rather than denying it. This allows us to try again next time if we can come up with anything resembling ID.)
UPDATE: looks like we're going to be able to get a copy of a form of ID the court will accept sometime soon. But my client will still have to sit in ICE custody for more than a week until his next scheduled hearing bc of this.
